Win. Kngflla Struck by the C:irs at Post
Siding ami Kilted.
Another victim was added, last night, to
the long list of those whose lives have been
terminated at the strangely fatal locality
known as Post Siding. This time the vic
tim is one William Kugiliu, a man of fam
ily and plasterer by trade, and he met his
• death 1... collision with the cars about 0:30
o'clock Isst evening. ' ,
About the time named Kugilin attempted
to cross Greenwood avenue at Post Siding
with a horse and wagon and when on the
track the team was struck by the White
Bear accommodation train, which left the
union depot at 6:15 o'clock. The horse
and wag were knocked off the track and
Kugiliu was hurled into the air.
The horse was killed instantly, the
wagon shattered, and when Kugiliu was
picked up he was quite dead, having been
badly cut and mangled about the back and
head. It is stated that the train was run
ning fast and that the company employs
no flagman at the crossing and that there
is absolutely no other protection! ;.\
The remains were taken in charge by
McCarthy & Donnelly and an inquest will
be held at their establishment on Waba
shaw street at 10 o clock this morning. The
deceased was about thirty-eight {years old,
and resided on Lamson street where he
leaves a wife and children."

Supreme Court.
In the case of Margaret Noon, adminis
i tratrix, vs. Andrew J. Finne^an, Judge
| Mitchell yesterday filed an opinion. The
! action was brought by plaintiff as adminis
tratrix of her late husband, for damages,
for trespass upon the real estate of the in
testate subsequent to his decease. The
j complaint docs not allege that plaintiff
has ever asserted her right as administra
trix by taking possession of the estate.
| Neither doer, it allege that the heirs have
[ not gone into possession nor that the land
jis vacant or unoccupied. The action was,
on motion of defendant dissmissed on the
! pleadings, and from the judgment entered
j thereon, plaintiff appeals. The court
holds that an administrator can
not maintain an action for trespass
upon real property committed after the
: death of the intestate unless he has first
• asserted his right under the statute by
; taking possession of such real property.
But if he takes possession of such real '
property, he may then maintain an action
for a trespass committed thereon before '
he took possession and after the death of i
his decedent. In such case his posses
' sion as well as his letters of administra- I
tion relate back to the death of his intes- \
i tate. Judgment affirmed.
Chief Justice Gilfillan filed a dissenting
i opinion, in which he claims that the
plaintiff may maintain the action. Though
the title to real estate does not rest in the
executor, yet it is subject to the demands j
jof administration. When necessary the
i rents, issues and profits and the value may !
' be resorted to as a sort of secondary fund |
: for payment of debts and legacies, and I
. with a view to that end the statute vests in j
the executor the right to its possession. It I
would seem inconsistent with this theory
that in any case one might destroy or j
impair the value of the real estate so that \
rents, issues and profits should be pre- i
vented or diminished without any liability ;
!to the executor or administrator. "I do
J not think," says the chief justice, it would
I be too liberal a construction of the statute.
! even leaving out section five of chapter
seventy-seven, to hold that in such case the j
executor or administrator may recover for j
; the damage done to the estate to hold the j
amount recovered as ho would hold rents.
; issues and profits for payment of debts
and legacies, if necessary."

Democratic Congressional Convention in
Winena Yesterday.
He Declines the Honor, But the Con
vention Refuses to Accept, and
[Spedial Telegram to the Cflobe. |
Winona. Sept. •>. The Democratic con
vention called for the purpose of nominat
ing a candidate to represent the First con
gressional district in congress, met at the
court house, in this city, at noon to-day.
Every county in the district was represent
ed, as will be seen by the list of delegates
given below.
The convention was called to order by
Hon. C. F. Buck, of Winona. chairman of
the district committee, and in doing so he
made one of his telling speeches, which
can be best characterized as multum in
parvo. The following is nearly the sub
stance of his remarks:
Gentlemen: — You have assembled here
in answer to the call of the Democratic com
mitte of this district, to place in nomina
tion a candidate for congress, and to take
such other action, as you in your wisdom,
may think necessary to further the busi
ness in hand. In marked contrast to the
convocation of federal office holders and
their henchmen, who recently assembled in
our sister city of Rochester, and who
placed in nomination a candidate for con
gress, who is in no sense a representative
o? the people, who is nowise the represen
tative of the people's interests, but who is
confessedly the representative of a political
boss and his interest. The delegates to
that convention reduced, degraded. Ameri
can citizenship — so far as their action was
concerned — to the level of the dependent
and vassal. They received and implicitly
obeyed instructions from the national capi
tal. An emmissary a clerk in one of the
departments at Washington, was clothed
with instructions and sent out hei - e as a
schoolmaster to instruct the citizens of
this district in their political duties, and to
direct who they shall nominate for con
gress, and to the shame and disgrace of
that convention, and to the humiliation of
every American citizen they abjectly obeyed
the instruction. On the contrary, gentlemen,
there are no federal officeholders here.
There are no representatives of corrupt
dynasties or of political bosses here. There
are no political collars worn here. But
you have assembled here as the representa
tives of the people, with an honest purpose
of taking such action as will redound to the
benefit and welfare of the people of the
district and of the whole country. With
the hope, gentlemen, that your delibera
tions will be conducted with that wisdom,
and with that harmony and concession be
coming men who are seeking the highest
and best good of their fellow men. I now
call this convention to order.
Senator Buck was frequently inter
rupted with loud applause.

Wabashaw county. Hon. D. L. Buell, of
Houston, was elected tempavary chairman

mittee during the present canvas in concert with ;
the central congressional committe, and that j
the chairman of each county delegation present !
furnish names of parties to be so appointed from
the respective towns in his county.
The committee on permanent organiza
tion reported in favor of the temporary
officers acting as the permanent officers,"
which report was adopted.
Mr. Morrisey, from the committee on J
resolutions, made the following report,
which was adopted, each resolution being
loudly applauded. V^vf
I Resolved. By the Democratic convention of
the First Congressional District:
! First. That we reaffirm the principles of the
Democratic National Convention as set forth in
the National platform adopted at Cincinnati in
j Second. - That we are in favor of civil service
reform, so that ' employees of the government
shall no [ longer be obliged 'to • obey the " com
mand of any "boss," or thereby forfeit their po
sition. That we believe the people
should be permitted to assemble
in political convention untrammeled by any dic
tation from the national capital .
— That we condemn the practice of per
mitting government employes leaving their
posts of duty and interfering in the deliberation
of the people in political convention assembled
at the instigation of any political boss, as was
the case in the recent Republican congressional
convention assembled at Rochester.
Fourth — That we are opposed to all sumptuary !
Fifth — we believe the existing tariff and j
the doctrine of protection which maintains it to i
be wrong in principle and practice, enriching the
few and oppressing the many, and we'therefore ,
demand the abolishment of the present protec- I
tive tariff and' the continuence of only such dv- I
tics and imparts as are needed to produce the I
necessary revonuo. . V; 0! i ' I
Sixth — we condemn the extravagance and I
sectional legislation of the last Republican con- I
gress . That wo are in favor of the | abolishment I
of thoso taxes which are a burden to the people I
and which are creating such an enormous cur- I
plus revenue, thereby encouraging public ex- I
travagance and waste of the people's money. I
Seventh— That we denounce the methods of I
the leaders of the Repuclicnn party in , assessing I
government employes for the purpose of raising I
money to corrupt voters and thereby maintain I
themselves in power, i
Eighth ßesolved that believing the present
administration to be corrupt and tend
ing to centralization and believing that ' the
interests of all would be benefited
by a change. We trust that as citizens of the
First congressional district of Minnesota, to see
a radical and thorough change and our govern
ment again administered on the Democratic
principles of Jefferson, the greatest good to the
greatest number, protection to all, special priv
i legesto none.
The resolutions being adopted, Hon. P.
H. Rahilly moved that the convention pro
ceed to the nomination of a candidate for
representative in congress. Adopted.
Mr. Guthrie, Esq., of Steele county,
arose and in an earnest speech nominated
Hon. Thomas Wilson of Winona county as
the choice of that county.
M. W. Cole of the same county said that
Steele had sent her delegates to the con
vention to nominate Judge Wilson. He is
the choice not only of the Democrats but of
a large number of Republicans of the
county. His personal popularity, his
spotless and unblemished character com
bined with his acknowledged ability pecu
liarly fitted him for a representative of the
First district.
The nomination was further seconded by
Capt. Harris, of Houston county, and the
compliment acknowledged in fitting terms
by Mr. Morrisey, of Winona.
Col. J. R. Jones spoke for Fillmore coun
ty, and said that Judge Wilson was Fill
more's first, last and only choice. [Ap
Mr. Rahilly moved that the nomination
be made unanimous by a rising vote, which
was carried with enthusiastic applause.
A committee consisting of two from each
county in the district was appointed to wait
upon Judge Wilson, inform him of his
nomination, and request his attendance.
The committee left in a body and in a
few moments returned with Judge Wilson,
whose appearance was greeted with ap
plause and cheers, which lasted for some
time. Quiet being restored Judge Wilson
proceeded to address the convention
in a speech of some length. He
commenced by saying that no language
could express his appreciation of the com
pliment paid him in the unanimous nom
ination tendered him for the high office of
member of congress, and if he was differ
ently situated nothing would give him
greater pleasure than to enter the cam
paign and work until the close of election
for success. As he was situated, however,
even if you could assure me of an election,
it would be a foolish thing for me to ac
cept. There are other reasons why I should
not accept. lam not a good politician.
I am a man of positive convictions, and
those convictions cannot be swerved to
answer the purposes of policy.
Judge Wilson then proceeded to arraign
the present administration of the govern
ment in scathing terms, asserting that it
was run by the money-bags of the country
in the interest of the money-bags, its pol
icy being the protection of the strong
against the weak. He handled Senator
Windom and his lackeys, including Broth -
er-in-lah Douglass, without gloves, and
said that such a condition of things was
an ouf rage upon the tax-payer and a dis
grace to the country. Judge Wilson con
cluded by saying that he could not accept
the nomination so generously ten
dered him in justice to himself
and to others. I cannot afford it. If lam
elected it would cost me every cent of my
salary to - perform the duties of the of
fice. No honest man can make money by
going to congress. Thanking you heartily
and sincerely for the honor you have done
me, I must beg leave to decline the nomi
Judge Wilson's ■ declination staggered
the convention, for a few moments, when
Col. Jones arose and in a few words moved
that the declination be not accepted.
Messrs. Cole and Kinney followed
in the same strain, and ' the
motion being put, it was adopted
by a rising vote amid tumultuous applause.
Judge Wilson again attempted to say
something more, when Col. Jones moved
that the convention adjourn, which was
carried with a hurrah, and Judge Wilson
at once surrounded by his ardent friends,
who would not listen to his withdrawal.

sion was composed of three divisions and
the line of march was up Broadway to Un
ion square, where it was reviewed by John
Swinton, Rev. Dr. McGlynn, Dr. A. Donai,
Louis F. Post and others. The Newark
jewelers turned out 600 strong, the piano
makers and cigar makers 2,000 each and j
the bricklayers 1.500. Many red flags were
in line and many of the bands played the
Marseille?. The mottoes carried were:
"Pay no rents;" "All men are born alike
and equal;" "Labor built this republic, ;
labor shall rule"; "No man can make land,
hence no individual should own it." At
the conclusion of the parade the organiza
tions proceeded to Elm park, where a
monster picnic is now being held.
Speeches were made by Jno. Swinton.
Robert Blaissart and otheis. The

movement for independence and freedom
from corporate monopolies, and their pow
erful influence, and declaring the workman '
entitled to a fair share of the products of
his toil, and that the board would exert its
influence in the advancement of the inter
ests of the laboring classes. The board
also adopted resolutions recognizing the
services of Engineer Melville, of the Jean
ette expedition. They \ appointed a com
mittee to receive him on his arrival and
tender him the use of the governor's room
in the city hall to hold a reception.
The Knights of Labor, composed of dele- :
gates from all parts of the country, met ,
to-day. The morning session was taken
up in the reception of credentials and a
preparatory business meeting. -
Louisville Industrial Exposition.
Louisville. Sept. s.— The sixth season
of the . Louisville industrial . exposition
opened this evening, with appropriate cer- j
emonies and great eclat, to an audience of -
at least 10.000. The blaze ot 100 electric
lamps, the clang of splendid music and the i
presence of a great number of strangers,
made the occasion a notable one. The dis
plays of implements, splendid specimens
of art and mercantile fabrics have never '
been equaled by any former season of en
tertainment. The Willimantic and «lk
culture and manufacturing displays are
particularly attractive, while the display !
of the Kentucky staples, tobacco, etc., has !
never been surpassed anywhere.
